LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Jerry Lawler, the self-proclaimed "King of Wrestling," was arrested early Friday.

Lawler, 66, and his fiancee, 27-year-old Lauryn McBride, are both charged with domestic assault. Police were called to their home in east Memphis last night after the two allegedly assaulted each other. 

McBride told police Lawler hit her in the head and shoved her against a stove. Lawler says McBride kicked him in the groin and scratched him in the face. 

Lawler is well-known to pro wrestling fans. During his 40-year career, he wrestled at events at the Louisville Gardens many times.
